|IJMB and JUPEB form at a university vs study centre|
What is A’level Programme?
A’level is a Pre-University programmes based on a country’s education system. A’level takes usually 12 months of duration to complete depending on which university and intake. Students who study A’level will be able to gain in-depth knowledge of their chosen subject.
In Nigeria, several universities accept candidates from all A’level programmes such as IJMB, JUPEB, NABTEB Advanced, Cambridge Advanced, etc.
Hence, frustrated candidates who could not pass UTME are taking to these A’level courses as the final resort – after all, they don’t need to write UTME or pass it again.
The question at hand now is “where best to do this IJMB, JUPEB, etc?” Is it better done in the university or any of the A’level study centre?
Ok. Let’s break things down.
IJMB, JUPEB, and Others at Universities and Study Centres
However, some independent bodies, organizations, or individuals equally run those programmes in their own study centers across the nation.
After completing the courses, universities can accept their candidates or produce them to any other universities if those candidates chose to seek admissions elsewhere.
Independent study centres only have the option to produce candidates for universities. They can’t accept them themselves since they’re not universities.
The Real Picture of Study Centres Running IJMB and Other A’levels
If admitted, you would be lectured, groomed to be ready to write A’level exams.
IJMB exams are set and marked by Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) which is the sole administrator of the A’level programme.
JUPEB exams are set and marked by the University of Lagos (UNILAG) which is in charge of the programme.
And so on…
If you must know, universities and study centres are not in charge of setting or marking the exams. They only prepare you for the joint exams that will be conducted nationwide by the bodies in charge.
If you pass, the centre delivers your results to you. Then, you’re on your own.
You’ll have to obtain the JAMB direct entry form, choose your universities of interest and process your admission into the 200 level of your desired course.
If you fail, that’s the end.
The True Picture of Universities Running A’level Programmes
However, the university has one main advantage over the study centre.
They trained you. Then, you’re their burden.
You stand a better chance of gaining admission into a university’s 200 level course if you’re their A’level candidate than if you’re coming from a study centre.
This is just mere common sense.
A university will want to make better provisions for her candidates before considering outsiders.
In fact, a university will eventually find a course to drop you to if you don’t meet up the requirements of your proposed course.
If I must give you my stand on this, I prefer you to obtain the form of a university running IJMB, JUPEB, or other A’level programmes to a study centre around.
While some study centres will convince you that they have connections with those universities you’ll choose for DE, the truth still remains that outsiders stand a lesser chance.
